August 25 is a great day for celebrity birthdays, and among the many talented people born today is sexy True Blood vampire Alexander Skarsgard. The gorgeous Swedish actor turns 36 today, and to celebrate, we’d like to hypothetically hook him up with one of his birthday twins.

Although neither Gossip Girl star Blake Lively nor Hart of Dixie’s Rachel Bilson is single, we still think they would both be perfect matches for A. Skars. Since they all share a birthday, any combination could be written in the stars, but let’s break down the similarities and differences between the ladies.

Rachel, who turns 31 today, is petite and brunette, and launched her career on the hit teen drama The O.C. back in 2003. The one caveat is that she’s besties with Alex’s ex, Kate Bosworth — the two even co-starred in L!fe Happens this year — which could make things awkward.

Physically, Blake couldn’t be more different than Rachel. The 25-year-old Gossip Girl star is tall and blond, matching up perfectly to Alex. However, the two gals also share many similarities: They are both stars on shows created by the same guy — The O.C., Gossip Girl, and Hart of Dixie all came from genius Josh Schwartz — and they both met their current and past boyfriends on set!

Rachel met on-and-off boyfriend, Hayden Christensen, on the set of Jumper, and Blake met Ryan Reynolds while filming The Green Lantern. Additionally, they both dated their exes — Rach with O.C. co-star Adam Brody, and Blake with Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley — for three years.

For a bit of perspective, Alexander met ex Kate Bosworth on the set of Straw Dogs, too. They dated for two years before splitting last July, and he has since been linked to many women, including supermodel Anne V, but isn’t officially dating anyone.

While it’s clear that Alex won’t be hooking up with either of these lovely birthday girls this year, that doesn’t mean it can’t happen in the future. Weigh in below on who you would most like to see him with — and yes, you can say you’d rather see him in his birthday suit with you tonight.
